Wasps stop the rot with Newcatle victory

Former European champions Wasps ended their three-match losing streak in the English Premiership with a 23-17 victory at Newcastle on Friday.

Danny Williams went over for a fine try to give Newcastle the lead which Rory Clegg converted. He added a penalty but five Dave Walder penalties gave Wasps a 15-10 half-time lead.

Tom May’s converted try put Newcastle back in front but Walder’s sixth penalty and a try from Charlie Beech secured victory for Ian McGeechan’s side.

Sale earned a 27-13 victory over Leicester to leapfrog the Tigers into second place.

Tries from Mark Cueto and Mathew Tait gave Sale a 17-0 lead after 30 minutes.

Leicester rallied after the break and touched down through Aaron Mauger in the 47th minute but Sale held on and Rory Lamont added a third try shortly before the final whistle.
